Hopefully....Rapiers(please, please pretty please with sugar on top)& Styrix/Magera knights. Maybe some new terrain?

Or absolutely nothing model wise.

Maybe transfers for some Legio that hasn't been covered yet even in this book? A new terminal pack with a different mix?

I kid, I kid. (But I am afeared.)

Edit: If they release the Rapier, I'll happily eat my words. I'm very excited for that one. But I was imagining that and maybe corrupted Titans too with the previously mentioned Kado book, which I thought was next. I dunno.

Fire Wasps and Astraman are old favourites - glad to see them coming up.

I'm hoping this release sees more weapon options making an appearance, hopefully during this release. Still waiting for the Saturnyne Lascutter for the Warlord as well as the rumoured Volkite arm weapon. Carapace Meltacannons or Plasma Blastguns would be nice as well considering they are explicitly mentioned in the Mechanicum Taghmata rules.


Yeah, and I'm hoping that they actually try to catch up with transfer sheets at some point also. However, I am a-feared that -- not unlike the last book -- this release is going to include Mechanicum Knights and not much else.

Edit: Of course I'm glad to see more support in the form of campaign books. But it feels like the books are stacking up as the other support is falling behind. I understand the global environment. But it feels disjointed from a customer perspective.



Ryza changed a lot with the custom legios, but I agree that the books are starting to stack up. I'd be more excited about the echoes of glory section if they actually included photography of game boards but that doesn't seem likely.

Do you play 30k? It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

The lack of new models shown makes me think this is a while away, and they're keeping something back for next month's article. I assume this is another January release.

Wow, thats quite a surprise. Always nice to have new AT stuff.

Mixed feelings on the Ignus Maniple. On the one hand its addressing a sorely lacking part of the game which is mixed Titan-Knight maniples, but on the other its still making the same mistake that was made with the Dominus maniple.

Maniples have so far been 3-5 titans. This and the Dominus maniple are the only known maniples so far( well, that I'm aware of ) to break that by saying 3-5 titans and 1-3 banners. To keep with the tradition of 3-5 titans it would make more sense to replace a titan with a full knight banner, instead of just adding a minimum banner...

MANDATORY
-----------------
- 2 Warhounds
- 1 Full Cerastus Acheron banner( 4 knights )

OPTIONAL
--------------
- 1 Warhound
- 1 Full Cerastus Archeron banner( 4 knights )

...because what they are doing with the Ignus and Dominus maniples is tucking into a player's support budget. Now, this might be fine with players who want to integrate their freeblade support banners, but not so much for players who are just after a mixed titan-knight maniple and wish to add titans for additional support. Maxed out the Ignus maniple is essentially a Lupercal maniple and an Acheron Lance rolled into one( minus the lance rules, of course ).

Its just an annoyance more than a deal breaker, as a similar setup could be good for my own force; 1 Reaver, 2-4 Hounds and 1-3 banners of Cerastus Lancers would be right up my street.

At this point I'd really fancy some cheese to go with my whine; how to go about purchasing such a maniple? 1-3 banners of Archerons will mean also purchasing 1-3 banners of Castigators( this is definitely going to annoy some players! ), and although the minimum is 3 warhounds, you'd have to purchase 4 in one go. Actually, thats not bad as that 4th hound will fill in an optional slot, and the hounds kit is bloody good value for money. Even still, a minimum option for this would cost £120 - yikes! Compare this to a Venator maniple( £75 ) or a Lupercal Maniple( £80 ) and it seems a bit pricey just to get to the table.

Wondered why this maniple doesn't include the thermal-cannon Questoris, but I guess that would have been awkward given the lack of the firestorm trait. That said, if the maniple's theme is flame weapons, then why is the knights restricted to flame-only weapons and not the titans? Very odd indeed.

Going forward it might be better to create a third option for building hybrid forces, and keep maniples strictly for titans and lances for households. Not sure how they would go about it but would appreciate it all the same.

To sum it up there's nothing actually objectionable - so far - with the forthcoming expansion, but its yet another sign that AT still has more work to do on the knight side of things. On a very positive note, this looks like a good follow up to Titan Death's focus on Titan legios and battlefield environment conditions. Interested to know what the Precept maniple will involve...

Well, the general pattern of all specialist games releases all follow the same pattern - a new plastic sprue with each book. Though, Aeronautica seems to buck that trend and Titanicus to a lesser extent. I suspect we’ll see a releases of some sort along with this alongside a deck of cards.

Got a gut feeling this release might include a new scenery kit to tie in with the new environment conditions. Unless, of course, the book reveals a new titan for the Precept maniple...

I'd rather like to see them start to add Chaos models (actual Chaos not just a paint scheme on Imperial Models)

Surprised FW hasn't already provided that in upgrade kits, much like the Ordo Sinister titan for loyalists. Maybe they will address that next?

GW could do it one of two ways - alternate chaos parts and weapons that are simply upgrades to the current models.

Or a full on launch of chaos unique corrupted models.

I think the issue is if GW starts with option 1 and bleeds into option 2 they could end up Chaos doing what Primaris and marines are doing - ergo having two armies sort of mushed together. Personally I'd like to see it because it shows GW taking a serious interest in the game in the long term and because once you've got Chaos there's every chance of getting Xenos and I'd love to see some Eldar and Tyranids in that scale. Plus even Tau can come to play with some larger mechs.

Lordly, I'd definitely go all in if they introduced other races. That would be absolute champion.

Mortis did in a previous supplement. Reasoning was “they were in the conflict depicted in the book.”

While I'm always happy to see another Titanicus book, I'm a little sad that it seems to feature no new weapons/Knights/Titans.

I'm guessing that the variant Warbringer will be the plastic released alongside this.

That's about least of their priorities. Likely xenos races come first.

Not the full lucius pattern, just the head which already exists in full scale. A new warlord with lucius head and some of the other warlord weapons would be great.

Had a reply from the White Dwarf team, and they said that while there are no plans yet for another AT report, they do hope to show Jason and Owen's full armies in an upcoming issue.

They also mentioned that the report's terminals were a challenge to put together but Sophie made it happen. Well done Sophie!

Yeah this, I love the head design on the mars pattern body, they show tons of artwork of titans equipped with this head in the books, and havent made it available. I really want to do Legio Astorum, but not without these heads (since you know, they're from Lucius). On an unfortunate side note, it seems the 28mm Lucius head is missing on FW website
